A little about me...


My story definitely begins with “I was born an artist.”

During my whole life I was around ballet, opera, paintings and movies; dancing, singing, painting and acting myself! That was always my life for as long as I can remember until after the MBA, “life got serious” -my parents said!- because for them being an artist wasn’t a serious career… so I ended developing a career in government and international affairs that lead me to travel around the world, live in multiples countries and learn different languages.

Although I had a very happy life, I was always missing the ability to express myself through art and It wasn’t until I got married that I fell in love with weddings and with wedding photography. Two things made click in my head and in my heart; the beauty of love and such and important union & the beauty of creating art through photography. That is when I FOUND MYSELF and this NYC wedding photographer was born!!

Ever since I have made my mission to share with couples around the world my experience, knowledge and passion for weddings and provide them with unforgettable memories in form of photographs that will cherish forever. If something stuck with me during my life abroad was the beauty of diversity and how culturally rich our world it is, therefore I cherish any kind or love and my photography is 100% inclusive #LoveIsLove

Your special day..


I was a bride once so I have been in your shoes and I know perfectly what you are feeling and how you will feel during you wedding day. Because of that, I will pass you a tissue when crying, I will pin the boutonnieres or dance in the dance floor to light up the guests.

My team and I will go above and beyond to make sure that you have what you need at all times.

I am not only your photographer, but I want you to think about me as a good friend that will be there to make your experience unforgettable and that also will deliver an awesome wedding gallery at the end.

This day is unrepeatable, you know it, I know it, so let’s plan it together to perfection!!!


  • I found Mariah online and honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! She is absolutely amazing! She was very attentive to time, she got BEAUTIFUL photos of not only my husband and I but of our families as well. Everyone, from the wedding party to the guest complemented on how great she was. Everyone said we couldn’t have picked a better photographer! She is just absolutely amazing, I would highly recommend her!

  • Mariah is obviously an amazing photographer. If you look at the pictures she takes, you can see this for your own eyes. What you can’t see from her pictures is how absolutely stunning, and lovely she is. I felt like I had a best friend by my side during my wedding. She is a very hard worker and extremely easy to get along with. If you have the opportunity to work with Mariah then you are very lucky.

  • Mariah was the best! We are in love with the photos! She not only captured beautiful images, she really was able to “get us” and make our photos feel like we feel about each other. She was always there capturing the moment without ever making us feel unnatural. She handled the stress of differing family opinions with grace and kindness. Highly recommend!

  • Mariah is a dream to work with! She was extremely professional, organized and helpful throughout the whole process. Our photos came out stunning and we couldn't be happier with the way Mariah was able to capture that special day. I have no idea how she did it, but our photos look like we were alone or there were very few people around even when we posed in a busy Central Park location! I would especially recommend her if you are…

  • When we decided to get married in New York, we weren't even going to hire a photographer but seeing the end results of Mariah's work has made us SO glad that we did! Our pictures are better than we could have ever imagined! What's more, she became so much more than just a photographer to us. I can't express enough how lovely, warm and friendly Mariah is. She made two camera-shy Brits feel at ease and relaxed. She's so easy…

  • I was beyond pleased with my experience with Mariah. I happened to be in New York on business trip and thought it be a good idea to do my engagement photo shoot in Central Park. We chose the sunniest day that week and Mariah suggested 8am to avoid the crowd. Although there was no wind and the sun was out it was still 28 degrees. Mariah was so accommodating, patient and understanding. She definetly made the experience better. And the…

  • When I planed my destination wedding in Brazil, I had clear from the beginning that I wanted Mariah as my photographer but I didn’t know how to make things work. She was super helpful and knowledgeable about the whole process and was there for us every step of the way to make sure that everything would turn up exactly as we dreamed. My family loved her as she also speak Portuguese and was able to communicate perfectly with all my…
